Phantom Fat: Feeling Fat after Weight Loss

August 16, 2017

Do you still shop for clothes trying on much larger sizes than you need…after your weight loss? Katie said “in my youth I lost 45 kg (99 lbs) dieting and felt fatter than what I was so much so that the shop assistant stopped me and said, you need smaller sizes love.” Mary said… "I lost 70kg (154 lb) but still felt like I was 140kg (308 lbs)." What’s going on here?
